Former captain of australia Ricky Ponting Believes that the Indian team’s fitness problems and their good record on Gaba will benefit the hosts in the decisive fourth Test in Brisbane.
He said, ‘Australia have a great record on Gaba and if Will Pukowski fits, there will be no change in the team. If Will does not play, the same change will happen and Australia’s performance in Sydney was good. “Many of India’s players are injured and they will have to make some changes in the team,” Ponting said.
Australia won 33 matches on Gaba, played 13 draws and lost eight. Ponting said of Pukowski, “This was his first Test and he could not return to the field on the last day.” it’s a matter of concern. He is young and definitely comes if he is in a position to play. I think his playing in Brisbane is questionable. ‘However, Cricket Australia later confirmed Pukowski’s absence.
